The 12th Annual Round the Bay Relay and Ultra is in the books and according to all, it was another successful event!! A big thank you to all the runners, volunteers, sponsors and supporters for your part in making this race the most fun race of the year!! The weather gave us a break and the runners took advantage of a good running day. The post-race continues to be a huge hit with Billie Adam's food, B.T. Turner's live music, great fellowship and the hospitality of The Elks Lodge.
I'll start updating parts of the website today to reference the 13th Annual Round the Bay Relay and Ultra tentatively scheduled for Saturday, December 30th, 2023. Once again, thanks for participating and have a healthy 2023 running year!!!
FINAL RACE DAY PREPARATIONS:
*** We are still monitoring the weather for Saturday morning. The starting times are listed on the front page of the website and we will start on time UNLESS there is severe weather/lightning in the area. If there is severe weather in the area, starting times will be delayed until it is safe for runners.
* All runners starting prior to 6:30 should be illuminated!!!!
* Team captains have received the Safety Notes and Race Course info, so please check with them if you have any question. The safety notes are also listed on the website.
It's race week!!!
The big question right now is the weather. Currently, moderate to heavy rains are predicted Friday night and early Saturday morning. The prediction is for the rain to end about 9:00 AM on race day. We will run the race rain or shine, unless the severity of the rain and/or lightning makes us make modifications.
Team captains will be emailed starting times and race safety notes. They will also be placed on the website under Starting Times and Race Rules.
We are just over a week out and we currently have 36 teams and 31 ultra runners!! I still have room for about 3-4 more teams, so contact me if you are interested.
The starting times for the teams have been linked on the Schedules/Start page. I plan to be at Run With It on Saturday morning at 9:00 to pass out team and ultra-race bags for those who will attend the RWI Christmas Eve get together.
We are now a month out from the race and registration is going well. The race shirts have arrived (new color this year) and the race socks will be here in early December. It's time to finish putting your team together and either sign up on active or send me your form and money. Shirts are guaranteed for the first 300 and we are already half-way there.
Important dates to remember:
The race is Saturday, December 31st.
Packet Pickup will be Friday, December 30th from 4:30-7:00 at The Island Hotel. (Don't forget the special discount prices for racers at The Island.)
Registration is still $35 with $5 off for NWFTC members. Late fees begin on Sunday, December 11th.
Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving and races are heating up in the area. I plan to attend the Reindeer Dash on Dec 10 and the Egg Nog Jog on Dec 17th. Similar to past years, I will begin handing out team bags at the Egg Nog Jog.
We are now about ten weeks away from the race so it’s time to get your teams together and register. Relay teams can register on www.active.com or by filling out a registration form which can be found on the NWFTC site, www.nwftc.com. Ultra runners will need to register on www.ultra signup.com and we have a good group already registered.
I will be attending many of the local races and will have registration forms available and can take you form and money.
Shirts and socks will be ordered shortly and will be first come/first serve.
I can be contacted at email@example.com if you have any questions.
